'Tis the season for cypress trees and even the local supermarket is in on the act. It’s so cute and looks right because it’s a baby. But the label says it’ll grow to 15 feet an we already know where that’ll go if you read my other cypress post.
So here’s my idea: Since these puppies are only good for a couple of years, why not just keep planting seedlings or whatever they’re called, which you can cultivate while they’re living on your layout. Then, when they get too big and out of scale, pull 'em out and maybe sell 'em (they’ll be more mature, able to drive, vote, and get a job) and you might even make a few bucks on Craig’s List or whatever. But cereal-lessly, how hard could it be to jam a tree branch in some dirt, water it, and make it grow? Ain’t that how the tree nurseries do it?
This is how she looks, size wise. Actually, that’s The Gronk’s hand. That tree is actually 3-feet tall!
